Improve Your Business By Reaching Our 50+ Audience.

Why Advertise With Us?

Today’s over 50 population is healthier, more active, and wealthier than any previous generation. With most of the same needs as their younger peers, plus with the unique needs that arise with age, people over 50 are perfect for targeted advertising!

It is easy to understand why advertisers are turning their sights away from younger consumers at a time when spending power is progressively more concentrated in the 50+ age group. Households 55-64 have
more buying power per person than any other age group. And buying power has migrated from families with children to empty-nest, pre-retiree, and retired households.

Montana has a proud, independent heritage and a rapidly growing population of individuals over 50. With the baby boom generation entering its senior years, this trend will continue well into the future.

You can seize this opportunity and take advantage of the undeniable demographic trends of the Senior Market by advertising with the Montana Senior News, which has served the 50+ populations for more than a fourth of a century, in all corners of the state and beyond.

With an estimated readership exceeding 70,000, the Montana Senior News is Montana’s newspaper for the mature reader who wants to be informed, entertained and empowered. This age group still reads and is less likely influenced by other channels.

Regardless of where you currently advertise or how you generally target your customers, you can put on a welcoming, friendly face for the 50+ demographic in Montana Senior News. We tailor editorial and advertising content, presenting Montana, her people, and her places as they have never been presented before.
